Are Americans becoming more peaceful'even after the 2004 elections and the seeming affirmation of the war in Iraq? Through most of 2005, support for U.S. militarism appeared to continue unabated. But with the umulative impact of Abu Ghraib, Valerie Plame, National Security Agency wiretapping, and more than 2,000 U.S. soldiers dead, Americans may be changing their minds. This book looks at the meaning of peace in the face of war and offers an optimistic interpretation of the public's changing views. Even if U.S. citizens are not ready to jump on the bandwagon of antiwar protest, they are becoming increasingly uncomfortable with the costs of war that can be measured not just in dollars but in lives and international respect. And, as Paul Joseph meticulously chronicles, Americans are becoming ever more resistant to and savvy about government management of the "facts" surrounding war. In areas ranging from media and photojournalism to gender and casualties, Joseph shows us the images and then exposes the realities. By 2006, even the military is beginning to look critically at the contemporary state of war and helping the rest of us to compare it to World War II on the one hand and Vietnam on the other. Are Americans Becoming More Peaceful? is must reading for anyone who cares about the current war in Iraq and who wants a grounded hope for the future.

Paul Joseph is Professor of Sociology and Director of the Peace and Justice Studies Program at Tufts University. He is the author of several books on Vietnam, nuclear weapons policy, and the security debate after the end of the Cold War.
